Tom Watson is a mighty fine fella and a mighty fine golfer.
In Wednesday’s mighty fine Courier he talks to The Courier about his abiding love of St Andrews ahead of his final Open in the Fife town.
It’s fine stuff. Mighty fine, in fact.
In other news we reveal details of a court case.
I fully appreciate that may not have you rushing out to your newsagent.
But when I tell you said case was held in the back of a security van I hope I may able to consider your interest piqued.
If I continue that the accused was housed in a plastic cell throughout then said interest may be approaching fever pitch.
And fever pitch will surely be exceeded when I add that it as all down to a suspected highly contagious skin condition such as scabies.
We have the full story.
If the prospect of a sheriff clambering into the back of a security van doesn’t grab you, then surely the tale of a lost Olivier screenplay discovered by a Dundee boffin will do the job.
Dramatic stuff. Just don’t mention the Scottish play…

You could count them but it would take you ages because there are so many of them which, in many ways, is the point I am attempting to make, without labouring it overly much).
